Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Mutation
  • Genetics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Disease, Alzheimer's disease and Dementia. Rita Guerreiro usually deals with Genetics and limits it to topics linked to Bioinformatics and Exon. The study incorporates disciplines such as Odds ratio, SORL1 and Genetic association in addition to Genome-wide association study.

Her research integrates issues of Immunology and Medical genetics in her study of Disease. Her Alzheimer's disease research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Common disease-common variant, TREM2 and Case-control study. Dementia is the subject of her research, which falls under Internal medicine.

Her most cited work include:

  • A hexanucleotide repeat expansion in C9ORF72 is the cause of chromosome 9p21-linked ALS-FTD (2859 citations)
  • Genome-wide association study identifies variants at CLU and PICALM associated with Alzheimer's disease (2556 citations)
  • TREM2 Variants in Alzheimer's Disease (1646 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Genetics, Disease, Genome-wide association study, Dementia and Frontotemporal dementia. Her Genetics study which covers Alzheimer's disease that intersects with TREM2. Her study in Disease is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Allele, Bioinformatics and Genetic architecture.

The Genome-wide association study study combines topics in areas such as Common disease-common variant, Genetic variability, Dementia with Lewy bodies, Genotyping and Genetic association. Her Dementia research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Oncology and Cohort. Rita Guerreiro interconnects Progressive supranuclear palsy, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Neuroscience and Gene mutation in the investigation of issues within Frontotemporal dementia.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (74.04%)
  • Disease (50.18%)
  • Genome-wide association study (30.18%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Disease (50.18%)
  • Genetics (74.04%)
  • Frontotemporal dementia (25.61%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Disease, Genetics, Frontotemporal dementia, Internal medicine and Genetic association are her primary areas of study. Her Disease study combines topics in areas such as Polygenic risk score, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Cerebrospinal fluid. She has researched Single-nucleotide polymorphism in several fields, including PSEN1 and PSEN2.

Her research ties Dystonia and Genetics together. Her work carried out in the field of Internal medicine brings together such families of science as Mutation, Oncology and Genotype. Her research in Genetic association intersects with topics in Genome-wide association study, BCKDK and Genetic architecture.

Between 2019 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Age at symptom onset and death and disease duration in genetic frontotemporal dementia: an international retrospective cohort study. (43 citations)
  • A rare loss-of-function variant of ADAM17 is associated with late-onset familial Alzheimer disease (23 citations)
  • A rare loss-of-function variant of ADAM17 is associated with late-onset familial Alzheimer disease (23 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Gene
  • Mutation
  • Genetics

Rita Guerreiro focuses on Frontotemporal dementia, Genetics, Disease, Genetic association and Gene. Her studies in Frontotemporal dementia integrate themes in fields like Right temporal lobe, Pediatrics, Atrophy and Medical genetics. Her research in Genetics is mostly concerned with Missense mutation.

Her Disease research incorporates elements of Exome sequencing and Immune system. Her work deals with themes such as Loss function, Genome-wide association study, Transcriptome, Nonsynonymous substitution and Genotyping, which intersect with Genetic association. The BCKDK and CNTNAP2 research Rita Guerreiro does as part of her general Gene study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as WWOX and ADAM10, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.
